Description

I love the brilliant colors in our Chinese crystal faceted round beads. The obvious choice to go with this metallic blue color would have been copper, but I wanted to mix it up a bit, so I paired it with antique brass beads and findings instead. The antique brass makes the blue that much more vibrant. I love it!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

Instructions:


  1. Cut a piece of beading wire measuring about 10 inches. String a crimp bead toward one end. Run your wire through half of the toggle then back down through the crimp bead. Crimp. Apply crimp cover.
  2. String the following pattern 9 times: brass bead, petal bead cap, crystal round, petal bead cap.
  3. String a brass bead and a crimp bead. Run your wire through the other half of the toggle then back down through the beads just strung. Crimp. Apply crimp cover. Cut excess wire.
  4. On a headpin, pick up a bead cap and a round bead. Make a loop. Attach the loop to the loop on the ring portion of the toggle. Wrap the wire and trim the excess.
